Adding insights & discussion starters at this event:

 This event offers you the opportunity to:
  • Discuss your interests.
  • Get inspired by & exchange with impulse givers as well as among all attendees.
  • Collectively identify possible solutions to issues like: 
    • Why is improving equity in sustainable access to safe, high quality and effective medical treatments important in your context? 
    • What kind of disparities cause inadequate and unequal access to medical treatments to date in your context? (Perhaps, what regulations fuel these disparities?) 
    • Tech & Data Literacy: How can citizens be turned into researchers, researchers into community leaders and communities into solvers - to help create solutions that they want and need?
    • Does addressing global health inequalities come before protecting intellectual property rights?
    • What positive examples do you know of that made a difference by sharing intellectual property rights, know-how or technology for the common good in regard of health data, medicines, vaccines or medical treatments? 
    • A fundamental right to scientific freedom is not protected in all countries: How could scientific freedom become a global common good? 
    • How do you reflect on the innovation gap & what levers do you identify to overcome the inequality of innovative activity with regard to healthcare?
      • In his book “The End of Poverty” economist Jeffrey Sachs writes “Over the span of two centuries, the innovation gap is certainly one of the most fundamental reasons why the richest and the poorest countries have diverged, and why the poorest of the poor have not been able to get a foothold on growth. The rich move from innovation to greater wealth to further innovation; the poor do not. (…) In most poor countries, especially smaller ones, the innovation process usually never gets started. Innovators do not invent because they know that they will not be able to recoup those large, fixed costs of developing a new product. Impoverished governments cannot afford to back the basic sciences in government labs and in universities. And the scientists do not stay. The result is an inequality of innovative activity that magnifies the inequality of global incomes." 

Your event ticket further enables you to:
